Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Inspired by island life, we created an IPA completely disconnected from the mainland. We used our one-of-a-kind Hop Torpedo to deliver an intense rush of hop flavor and the lush aromas of mango, papaya, and passionfruit with every sip. Enjoy our tropical twist on the American IPA.

Pretty solid for a SN 6 pack at the $ price. Clear in look, not much smell. Taste was some tropical type fruit like Mango. Maybe some Stone Fruit. Enough bitterness to pair well with food.

Clear appearance. Thin head that receeds rather quickly into a thin collar. Aroma is floral, mango, passionfruit and pineapple. Taste like passionfruit and mango and than finishes with an abrupt hoppy bite. Gives me a cottonmouth feel. I think this beer would have been better if the date was better but its all i had to work with. Still it is a easy drinker.

I'm not an IPA guy but this is really tasty and easy. Not a lot of bitterness on the back...the fruitiness is subtle. Would buy again.
